i Karishma,
Absolutely! Just make sure to go with darker colors or a clear one. Brown mascara won’t really do anything to play up your eyes. I love to wear deep plum and navy mascara. I also like burgundy, which tends to make your eye color look lighter. Have fun and play with color!

Hi Shalini,
What’s the one facial feature I should play up in the summer? And if I only focus on one, do I go bare everywhere else?

Hi Shahnaz,
I love to play up my cheeks in the summer. Nothing is sexier than flushed, feminine looking cheeks. Opt for a creme or gel blush for a more natural look, and pair this look with a pink gloss and tons of mascara!n

    Hi Shalini,

    I’m getting married on May 25, 2008 in Bangalore, India. Unfortunately my first trip to Bangalore will be just days before the wedding.

    Can you suggest make-up products that will actually work in the weather (hot!!) and facial remedies that I should do so skin stays “normal”?

    Hoping to hear from you soon! Thank you in advance!!
